Sree said ; Jews do not eat fertile eggs. Do you?
Jews don't eat pork also, a left-over from the times people would get trichinosis from eating undercooked pork.
The following types of meat and meat products are not considered kosher:
Meat from pigs, rabbits, squirrels, camels, kangaroos, or horses
Predator or scavenger birds, such as eagles, owls, gulls, and hawks
Cuts of beef that come from the hindquarters of the animal, such as flank, short loin, sirloin, round, and shank
IMO, Jewish cuisine wastes a lot of perfectly edible food.
I had a little farm with 3 horses, 3 pigs, a 1oo chickens (2 roosters), 2 goats, 1 sheep, 2 dogs, 3 cats.
Most eggs were fertilized and we used to sell them every day by the dozen to our neighbors. Our chickens were “sex links”, large red chickens which lay big brown eggs but do not brood, which we raised from a dozen mail ordered eggs in our bathtub.
Breed Characteristics of Golden Comets
Golden comet chickens are a great choice to either start or add to your flock. This chicken comes from crossing two other established breeds, the Rhode Island Red and the White Leghorn. If you’re just starting out, golden comets would be a good option as you learn about the basics of raising poultry. Here is golden comet breed info that may be helpful in your decision when choosing the right kind of chicken to raise.
Easygoing Temperament – Golden comet chickens are known for being sweet and docile. These birds will most likely follow you around affectionately, so they make a great breed for families with kids.
Excellent Egg Potential – Compared to other hens, golden comets are super egg producers. Golden comet eggs are large, brown and flavorful. You could potentially get seven eggs per week from your golden comet hen.
Color and Look – Only the females of this breed have the characteristic golden color. Females also typically have white lacing throughout their feathers. Male golden comets come in white.
Comfortable in Weather – Golden comet chickens can do well in both very warm climates and colder temperatures. That way, your chickens can get that outdoor time for longer periods of the year.
We also had “Sister Teresa” a small Banty who did nothing but brood and once hatched 18 eggs from a mountain of 22 sex links eggs.
It was like a cartoon . This tiny chicken sitting on top of this mountain of eggs, constantly rearranging the pile so that all eggs remained warm. When they hatched she would lead them around the yard and after a week the chicks were just about as big as Mother Teresa herself. It was sight…
We never had any problems with the yearly swarms of Carpenter ants. Within a day, no ants, termites or other ground critters were to be found around the yard.
